Remembrance of Things Past..

Mark and I 'got lucky' with the weather when we booked a short break in Swanage just before Easter.  We parked the car at the hotel and walked everywhere for four days.  It was a great way to get rid of the last of the 'winter fug' and a lovely chance for me to revisit one of my teenage haunts.

I've shared some of my teenage memories here on the WordPress blog.  I hope that they amuse you!

Since we got back I've gone down with a cold and chesty thing, which laid me a little low for Easter weekend itself.  Fortunately Mum and Sister decided that they wanted to do all the big family meals, so all I had to do was sit quietly in a corner and try not to cough.  The bug seems to be clearing my system now.... I expect that I'll feel fine by the time I go back to work next Monday!!!

Mark moved his holidays so that we could have the break in Swanage.  As a result it's been really quiet around here since Monday.  Yesterday I caught up with all the 'niggly' jobs that have been tormenting me for weeks (dealing with charity shop bags, rag bags, cleaning the cat flap...) so today I feel 'super-virtuous'!

It won't last.....!!!!!
I hope you are all having a good week.


  1. I am so glad you posted here today--I have missed you!!! That coughing thing has been going its rounds here in the area too. Luckily, it missed this wee home. I shall go to your other blog and check out your childhood haunts. Blessings

  2. I wondered where you had got to Jan. Hope you are feeling better soon. I think Tony and I have been struck down by the Norovirus bug this last few days (we suspect caught by visiting Tony's dad in hospital) so a quiet ish Easter break for us. I loved the musings on your other blog by the way!

  3. Glad you had a lovely break Jan, it sounded perfect. Hope you feel better really soon.

  4. Sorry to hear you've been unwell over Easter but it is nice to hear from you. I've had a look at your other blog and have figured out where the comments box was hiding - I couldn't find it last time!

  5. What a lovely break you've had, I love revisiting places from my childhood, they bring back so many memories. Hope you're feeling a little better, it's no fun being ill when you've got some time off work.
